Cox v. State
|Cox v. State|
Cox was on trial for Leonard’s murder. State argued Cox killed Leonard as retaliation for helping put his friend in jail. State wanted to put DA on the stand to testify that he was going to file additional charges, so Cox’s friend’s bond wasn’t reduced.
Another close friend of Cox was at the bail hearing. Cox argued that DA testimony is not admissible b/c it’s relevant only if Cox knew what happened at hearing, which has not been conclusively proven.DA testimony was admitted.
